South Africa » Singita Game Reserves

Singita, meaning 'place of miracles', is world-renowned for providing some of the best safari experiences in Africa. The balance of hospitality, conservation and community is what sets Singita apart.

There are five safari lodges in two equally alluring parts of South Africa, both famous for their exquisite beauty and the chance of finding the 'Big 5'.

The founding lodges, Singita Ebony and Singita Boulders, are located within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve - the world's best leopard viewing area, as well as Castleton Camp, a private 6-roomed villa that overlooks a well-frequented waterhole.

Singita Lebombo and Singita Sweni Lodge are found along the secluded eastern reaches of the Kruger National Park - a remote wilderness area renowned for its lion prides.

Singita Sabi Sand

The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is bisected by the perennial Sand River, and game viewing is abundant in this part of the world. Groves of Acacia Thornveld and Marula trees give way to open expanses of grassland where zebra, antelope and wildebeest graze freely. The region is particularly famous for its big cat activity and leopard sightings.

Singita Sabi Sand offers rare solitude and the ultimate in safari luxury on prime game viewing land recognised globally for its diversity and formidable concentration of big game and frequent leopard sightings. Guests can choose between three unfenced lodges, infused with the glamour and elegance of Singita.

Ebony Lodge and Boulders Lodge, overlooking the Sand River, offer lavish comforts that have earned Singita the highest international accolades. Each lodge accommodates just 24 guests in twelve air-conditioned suites. Guests can enjoy the complete exclusivity of a private pool and game viewing deck.

Castleton Camp is a sincerely inviting hideaway overlooking a well-frequented waterhole. Comprising a stone-walled 'farmhouse' and six charming rooms, this colonial homestead offers a welcoming ambience of understated luxury. Castleton Camp is booked as an exclusive retreat and can accommodate up to twelve guests at a time.

Singita Kruger National Park

Singita Kruger National Park is located on the Park's eastern border with Mozambique and represents one of the few unspoilt territories in Africa where large prides of lion thrive. The rocky outcrops of the nearby Lebombo Mountain range provide a unique habitat for a range of species; including the famous Mountain Pride of lions. There are also elephant, buffalo, leopard, white and black rhino, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, hippo, wildebeest, kudu, crocodile and many other mammal, reptile and bird species.

Offering contemporary African chic, Singita Lebombo Lodge is a celebration of light and comfort with intrinsic touches that delight the senses. Structurally inspired by an eagle's nest the 15 loft-style suites perch high above the N'wanetsi River. A spectacular cliffside pool offsets views of the Lebombo Mountain foothills.

Nestled low on the Sweni River, the more intimate Singita Sweni Lodge boasts six exclusive suites on the water's edge. Expressing a distinctly avant-garde African style, the lush surroundings blend beautifully with Sweni's charm.
